with Angela Mariani
Je suis desheritée - This week on Harmonia, we’re exploring another in our series of greatest hits of the Renaissance. The tune in question is a love song called “Je suis desheritée,” and we’ll hear it in secular and sacred, instrumental and vocal iterations from the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries by composers as famous as Lassus and Palestrina. Plus, our featured recording is Song of Beasts: Fantastic Creatures in Medieval Songs by Ensemble Dragma.
 7 AM - 11 AM
